Piles (Haemorrhoids)

Piles or Haemorrhoids or Bawaseer(in Hindi) are swollen veins in the lower part of the anus and rectum. Piles or Haemorrhoids are normal tissue like every other tissue in the body until it begins to swell, gets inflamed, or starts to bleed. This condition is common in individuals with chronic constipation. If your stool is always soft, your chances of developing piles is significantly reduced. Over half of the adult population, by the age of 50 is known to deal with discomfort, itching, and bleeding in the anal region that can signal the presence of piles. Every second individual in the world is diagnosed with piles at some point between 45 to 65 years of age. As you age, body tissue becomes weak, and veins bulge easily. Symptoms of Hemorrhoids are seen even in teenagers and in their early twenties due to varied food habits like low-fibre processed foods and sedentary lifestyles. Brief Anatomy The anus ( anal canal 4cm) is divided into two portions, the Lowermost portion and the inner portion. The lowermost part of the anal canal is in continuation to the skin of the buttocks and is hence pain-sensitive; the inner portion is above the dentate line and thus does not perceive any pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the difference between Piles, Fissures & Fistula?

A. Piles, fissures & fistula affect the anal canal. In brief, piles (also known as haemorrhoids) are cushions in the anorectal region, which can pop out of the anal canal & they can go in on their own or decide to stay out. These at times can be internal or external haemorrhoids &, most of the time, internoexternal. In Piles, there would be painless bleeding, and bleeding would be fresh, bright red seen mainly after passing stool & the cushions bursts. A fissure is a cut/injury/tear in the anal canal when hard stools are passed. Fissure will cause intense, severe pain, and the patient won't be able to defecate completely. The anal canal will go into spasm & will not try to pass stool again. The fistula is a second separate opening outside but close to the anal canal and is not normal. It starts with perianal abscess with swelling, which at times bursts on its own. The opening is primarily an internal opening. In the case of a chronic fistula, there would be an external opening with a pus-filled cavity.
